12 DAYS IN SIRACUSA, A SAILING BOAT AND RAGUSA

12 DAYS IN SIRACUSA, A SAILING BOAT AND RAGUSA

Siracusa is impressive, solemn, intriguing, with stunning and incredible views on ancient history.

You start from tasting the incredible Sicilian street food wondering in the old market of Ortigia and then, if you like, you could have another gastronomic wandering in the outstanding Noto, famous for its sweet almonds. You will pass another day on the sea, having a relaxing boat ride along the coastline of Siracusa, admiring the crystal water and having the chance of snorkeling around! And this isn’t the only active experience: we set for you an exciting biking activity near the archaeological site of Pantalica.

And then, before going to the next part of your travel experience, you will spend two days on the sea! Have you ever slept lulled by the sweet movement of the waves? You will know what to tell when coming back home: two sailing experiences, the open sea, delicious lunch prepared on board!

Finally, the third part of this adventure: Ragusa, the jewel baroque city! You will be immersed in the amazing gastronomy of this southern part of Sicily: two wanderings discovering traditional recipes and hints of history in Ragusa, Modica and Scicli and then a trekking near Ragusa: a journey through the flavors of the Hyblaean area that will show you the world of homemakers and farmers.

We choose all your accommodations specifically thinking to your need: immersed in the center of the cities, where you could “breathe” the authentic air of Sicily! And near to everything you should need (from the most important sightseeing to the stores), to let enjoy your Travel Experience at its best. And remember: the Local Jack (your guide during the entire holiday), will be there for you when you most need him/her! Just think him/her as a friend, a local who will let you discover Sicily through his/her own eyes: the most authentic experience ever.
